Sitefinity Server Architecture for HA
I'm planning to get Sitefinity professional edition for my website that requires HA.
I have 2 x load balanced web servers to serve a website, e.g. www.abc.com.
I'm planning to host the Sitefinity CMS (as cms.abc.com) in one of the web servers but only allow access from local corporate network (using IP Whitelisting).
2 x database servers (mirrored, active-passive, for disaster recovery).
May I know if this is achievable in Sitefinity.
I couldn't find much documentation about this.
The information on this page is confusing to me: www.sitefinity.com/.../hosting_recommendations_and_setup
It says that I need a shared distributed file server to host the Sitefinity files and codebase. Why??
I'm new to Sitefinity and used to Sitecore. Please advise.
You can take a look over the NLB documentation articles:
- Deploy your website in a NLB environment
- Sitefinity load balancing
Note that both servers have point to one database. Than this database could be replicated as you mentioned for disaster recovery needs.
I hope this helps.
